Women from all over California will come together January 8-10 in beautiful San Juan Bautista for California Women for Agriculture’s (CWA) annual convention. The event will include a tour of San Benito County and feature its many agricultural assets, including crops, cattle, and vegetables, as well as a wine tasting and reception at Cienega Valley Winery.
After the statewide meeting, there will be a reception honoring CWA’s new president, Celeste Settrini, where there will be a special guest appearance by nationally acclaimed writer/speaker and agricultural advocate, Trent Loos. Loos is a sixth-generation American farmer who is currently on the national radio program, Rural Routes, a one-hour program aimed at bridging rural and urban America.
CWA supports a sustainable agricultural industry and a domestic food supply that utilizes advanced technologies to produce the safest, most affordable and healthiest food, fiber, fuel and floral supply in the world. CWA is proactively advocating the benefits of biotechnology, as well as other agricultural technologies and tools to its local and state elected officials, as well as consumers.
California Women for Agriculture’s mission is to promote educational programs in order to develop the interest of California women in agriculture and to promote agriculture in California. It is a statewide organization with more than 1800 members.
